Comparing Unlike Fractions
Comparing Like Fractions: Learn
A Fraction consists of two numbers separated by a line.
The top number (or numerator) tells how many fractional pieces there are. In the fraction 3/8, we have three pieces.
The denominator of a fraction tells how many pieces an object was divided into. The fraction 3/8 tells us that the whole object was divided into 8 pieces.
If the numerators of two fractions are the same, the fraction with the smaller denominator is the larger fraction.
|is larger than||
This is because each fraction says there are five pieces but if an object is divided into 8 pieces, each piece will be larger than if the object were divided into 10 pieces. Therefore, five larger pieces are more than five smaller pieces.
